35. SNAKES HEADS FINGER RING WITH GLASS EYES

Rare zoomorphic ring with fluted shoulders. C. 2 - 3rd Century AD? Was probably gilded. Unusual makers stamp inside band (not legible). This and the glass eyes makes me think this ring may have been added too at a later date, perhaps around 1900?


Condition: Excellent.

Dimensions: Very wearable: Internal dia: 20 mm (UK size U).

Provenance: Ex. Ancient & Gothic, reputedly from London UK.

Price: SOLD
